"I am really pleased with the win tonight,” said ODU head coach Angie Hind. “We scored two good first half goals and in the second had to deal with a lot of long balls but credit to the team everyone played their part. We will recover now and have a quick turnaround as we head to UTEP for Sunday's game."
ODU jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 5th minute off Kira Laurento’s third goal of the season.
